Notable Members: Mona -- Alpha of Alphas. She chairs the Council of Alphas, as close to a central government as the planet has. A woman that plays her cards close the chest. Likes Li'ira, wants many more like her.
History of the Organization: A world founded by the (controlled) crash of a Great Orion slave ship. The only females on the ship were Green so the population of the resulting forced colony is Green. Due to the presence of Green males it isn't 100% female. They have one of the highest rate of true sexual reproduction of any Orion world. Boys are 30% of the population.
In the several thousand years since the crash the Greens had full unsupervised ability to pursue Green culture as they saw it. What came out is not identical to the Oz Green viewpoint, but you can clearly see the common roots.
Verdan has applied for Federation membership on the basis of being quite aware of warp drives but not having the industrial base to build their own ships. A provisional Membership has been granted while the process is underway. Gold panties are in some very tight and uncomfortable bunches.
The origin of the super telescope is being explored. Further archeology is underway and sites have been located.
